SRS Real Estate Partners completed the $22 million sale of Silverbell Plaza, a 97,540-square-foot retail center located at 2480-2500 N. Silverbell Road and 2106-2180 W. Grant Road in Tucson.
John Redfield, a senior vice president with SRS’ Investment Properties Group in Newport Beach, California, and SRS Senior Vice President Alan Houston in Phoenix represented the seller, a private investor from Arizona. The buyer, a Washington-based private investor who was in a 1031 exchange, was represented by Gary Gallelli Jr. and Adam Rainey of Gallelli Real Estate.
Situated on 8.45 acres, the property was 97% occupied at the close of escrow and anchored by Walgreens and Safeway. Additional tenants include Anytime Fitness; Leslie’s Poolmart; PNC Bank; Wingstop; H&R Block; and 14 other local, regional and national businesses.
“Silverbell Plaza is a high-quality, grocery-anchored center, and the seller has had a true pride of ownership for more than 20 years,” Houston said.
“Our SRS team worked with our client to thoroughly understand the asset’s history, stability and positioning in the market and proactively marketed Silverbell Plaza to our extensive national investor database.”
Redfield added, “This was a prime example of a buyer and seller working together through escrow during an uncertain time in the market. Both parties kept their long-term goals in focus to help complete this transaction. This was a true team effort all around, and a good showcase of SRS leveraging its investment sales and leasing experts, and working together to create a winning situation for both sides.”
